Best Indian-style pizza in Vancouver

Oct 27 2020, 2:54 pm

No frills, no fuss, and no worrying about still being hungry afterwards — if you’ve ever ordered Indian-style pizza, you know what to expect.

Pizza with an Indian twist is one seriously flavour-packed dish, and there is a plethora of places in and around Vancouver to get it from.

These joints do up this combination dish right, and many are family-owned and -operated mom-and-pop shops that have done so for several decades, so you know they’re onto something.

The crust of the Indian version of this dish is typically thicker, crispier, and more oily than an Italian pizza.

On top of that (literally) is either a regular house-made sauce or an “Indian-style” one made with garlic, cilantro, and a medley of spices that give it more of a kick than anything you’d find on the base of a pie at a mainstream chain.

From there, the specialty pie can be topped with Indian dishes and popular ingredients used in the cuisine such as butter chicken, tandoori chicken, and marinated, creamy paneer. Often you’ll find the toppings baked underneath a layer of cheese with this style of pizza.

If you’ve never indulged in this dish before, we’d urge you to try a pie from one of these local eateries; we’re sure you’ll be glad you did.

Here are the 10 places to get the best Indian pizza in and around Vancouver.
